DESCRIPTION


The dconf program can perform various operations on a dconf database, such as reading or
writing individual values or entire directories. This tool operates on dconf directly,
without using gsettings schema information. Therefore, it cannot perform type and
consistency checks on values. The gsettings(1) utility is an alternative if such checks
are needed.

The DIR arguments must be directory paths (starting and ending with '/'), the KEY
arguments must be key paths (starting, but not ending with '/') and the PATH arguments can
be either directory or key paths.

The OUTPUT argument must the location to write a (binary) dconf database to and the
KEYFILEDIR argument must be a .d directory containing keyfiles.

VALUE arguments must be in GVariant format, so e.g. a string must include explicit quotes:
"'foo'". This format is also used when printing out values.

Note that dconf needs a D-Bus session bus connection to write changes to the dconf
database.

COMMANDS


read
Read the value of a key.

list
List the sub-keys and sub-directories of a directory.

write
Write a new value to a key.

reset
Reset a key or an entire directory. For directories, -f must be specified.

compile
Compile a binary database from keyfiles.

The result is always in little-endian byte order, so it can be safely installed in
'share'. If it is used on a big endian machine, dconf will automatically byteswap the
contents on read.

update
Update the system dconf databases.

watch
Watch a key or directory for changes.

dump
Dump an entire subpath to stdout. The output is in a keyfile-like format, with values
in GVariant syntax.

load
Populate a subpath from stdin. The expected format is the same as produced by dump.

help
Display help and exit. If COMMAND is given, display help for this command.

ENVIRONMENT


DCONF_PROFILE
This environment variable determines which dconf profile to use. See dconf(7).
